Original text and translations

Rimanti in pace; i' vado: a te non lice
Meco venir; chi mi conduce il vieta.
Rimanti, o va per altra via felice,
E come faggia,e gia i tuoi configli acqueta.
Ella, mentre il guerrier così le dice,
Non trova loco torbida inquieta:
Già buona pezza in dispettosa fronte,
Torva il riguarda,alfin prorompe all'onte.

Gerusalemme liberata 16/56

"Stay here in peace, I go, nor wend you may
With me, my guide your fellowship denies,
Stay here or hence depart some better way,
And calm your thoughts, you are both sage and wise."
While thus he spoke, her passions found no stay,
But here and there she turned and rolled her eyes,
And staring on his face awhile, at last
Thus in foul terms, her bitter wrath forth brast:

Translated by Edward Fairfax (1560-1635)
